Oh gosh – It depends on your insurance policy actually – Man, nobody wins with this, but someone definitely gets fired, no matter what the answer is This is tough I'm gonna guess school kids get day off

And this is a mix up – Wrong, Link It's have a great day! – Have a great day? – Yes – I mean, if your house isn't burning down, you have nothing to complain about – Well to clarify this was actually a broadcast in hell so this was a great day

Look at, he's got, he's layered – [Link] No – [Rhett] He's layered – [Link] Oh, he is layered – [Rhett] You know? – [Link] Okay

– Kids that age, if you're layering at that age, you're a cool kid That's what I always say – Layered Hamilton, that's what, that's what his nickname is, like the surfer – But incidentally, he is also a vape teen and he is adopted You were right

– Don't vape, not cool – And, breaking news, Link This round is twos-worthy– – Oh, well I need it – Meaning it's worth two points But you still gotta get both of these last questions right

– Yes, okay – To be the weatherman – All right – [Rhett] Take a look at this man, John Levesque – [Link] It says 41 degrees on the left, 52 degrees now, so it's gonna get colder tomorrow night

– Oh, get ready (crew laughing) Okay, what interesting thing are they telling us about John Levesque? A) Won't eat his vegetables, B) Not Kevin James, Or C) Had to go home and shower – Okay, see, it's somebody having fun with chyrons, no matter what the answer is here, this is someone in the studio and this is their last day and they're going out with a bang – Okay – That's my theory

– All right, okay – So what's the funniest one that someone who worked at a news studio could come up with? – Okay, so you lowered your standards a little bit – Yeah, right, and I would say, not Kevin James for two points – Link, you sure? – What about had to go home and shower?

(crew laughing) Slash inappropriate Nosey neighbor makes little to no sense But what's for dinner could work under any news story, I think – That's, yeah, you're right – Just try it

Next time you're watching the news, just like, I'm going with what's for dinner? – For the win, but actually the loss It's sexual predator – Sexual predator – Yes, that little dog's a sexual predator He likes it rough
